Metro becomes the third most read paper in the world

Gaceta de Prensa reports that the free paper Metro, which just had its tenth birthday, now distributes more than 6 million copies a day which are read by almost 17 million people, making it the world's third most read paper behind Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun and the Asahi Shimbun. It must be kept in mind, however, that Metro has achieved this number by publishing 57 editions in 81 cities in 18 countries, whereas most high-selling papers are published regionally with very few publishing internationally.
